We’d love for you to join us in any way you can. Write to us at email@example.com! There are three main ways to be involved — they are:
As a participant.
The easiest way to take part is simply to become a class participant! This simply means attending the class/workshop/skillshare that interests you, and becoming part of a community of radical learning. If you don’t have a lot of time to make a commitment, just attending and learning is a great way to support. We need people to engage with and shape the various offerings of FreeSkool facilitators. But if you can’t find classes that interest you or you would like to offer something else…
Be a facilitator.
Propose a subject, series of conversations, workshop, that you would like to invite people to, and share your knowledge. We would be happy to help you get set up with whatever you need, help promote, etc. Even if there’s something you aren’t comfortable “teaching” but would like to learn more about and invite people to learn alongside you in a group setting, that sort of structure is totally welcome.
Join the organizing collective.
We’re pretty small right now and if you have the ability to make a time commitment, working with us is also a great way to learn basic community organizing skills and help build and sustain the project. Right now that means (typically) meeting once a week, helping find space for upcoming classes, helping promote FreeSkool and postering, etc. But depending on the time of year and how much support a given semester’s set of classes need, the workload and work type varies.
